Uber Hires Pepsico’s Tony West as General Counsel

I am quoted in the Washington Post on Uber’s hiring of Pepsico’s Tony West as general counsel.

“West’s contacts and knowledge at DOJ will be invaluable,” said David Kass, a professor of finance at the University of Maryland. “Having been at DOJ at a very senior level he would be familiar with the appropriate way to communicate with and approach DOJ, and help resolve any issues that may come up.” Kass noted that the hire should bolster the image of Uber in a major way, especially as it faces heightened legal threats.
